Book Excerpt : While the existing literature on offshore structures touch on model testing, a comprehensive text discussing the design, construction, instrumentation, testing and analysis of the physical model is lacking. This book fills that vacuum and provides, through its survey of the theoretical and practical aspects of physical modeling, an in-depth coverage of the technology of model testing. Its usefulness runs through the entire field of engineering, reaching far beyond its focus on offshore construction; and its breadth of scope should appeal not only to engineers and naval architects but to scientists interested in structural or hydraulic testing as well. Contents:IntroductionModeling LawsModel Construction TechniquesModel Testing FacilityModeling of EnvironmentInstrumentation and Signal ControlModeling of Fixed Offshore StructuresModeling of Offshore OperationsSeakeeping TestsData Analysis Techniques Readership: Undergraduates and engineers in coastal engineering, naval architects, scientists interested in structural or hydraulic testing. keywords:Physical Modeling;Scaling Laws;Hydrodynamics;Testing Facilities: Instruments;Offshore Structures;Wave Generation;Seakeeping “... a thorough and well-written book ... could only have been written by someone with a wealth of personal experience. The breadth of material in each chapter is truly impressive and valuable; and the abundance of relevant references ... adds considerably to the value of the book. These references will be especially beneficial to those wishing to pursue the individual topics in more detail ... it will serve as a valuable reference to anyone working in this field. It is an important contribution to the field of offshore modelling.” Coastal Engineering
